"Felipe was really the first," remembered Manny Mota, "the guy who cleared the way. He was an inspiration to everybody [in the Dominican Republic]. He was a good example." 1 Juan Marichal, like Mota a fellow Dominican, agreed. "Everybody respects Felipe Alou," he recalled. "He was the leader of most of the Latin players." 2 Willie Mays, a teammate of all of these players, remembered, "It was like a family when they came over." 3 These men helped define the baseball of their time, and Alou was both a leader and a friend to many of them.

Other teams before 1929 tried putting numbers on their uniforms, but mostly on an experimental only basis, usually not lasting longer than a season or sometimes even past a few games.  The Yankees were the first to implement uniform numbers and maintain the practice indefinitely.

Felipe is the Spanish variant of the name Philip , which derives from the Greek adjective Philippos "friend of horses". Felipe is also widely used in Portuguese -speaking Brazil alongside Filipe (the form that follows the official orthography of Portuguese and that is commonly used in Portugal ).
